KUCHING, 4 Jan: Assistant Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Datuk Sebastian Ting is encouraging the public to visit the new “Lion’s head” and “Baby Drinking Horse head” structures recently found at Tusan beach in Bekenu, Miri.
During his visit to the beach together with friends, they found the structures and also discovered a few interesting structures formed and shaped by the natural elements – the wind, rain, sun and fierce waves.
“One such structure appears to resemble the head of a lion, from a distance. We found one structure which might resemble a small baby horse head drinking water from the sea,” he said in his statement in Facebook, today.
Previously there was a “drinking horse” structure on the beach, which unfortunately was “taken away” by the sea on Feb 22, 2020.
Ting said recently local newspapers reported new interesting discoveries at Tusan beach and one such discovery is the “Lion’s head” structure.
He encouraged the public to visit and take a walk on the beach in the morning during the weekend and then proceed to Bekenu for lunch and order the famous ikan “betutu” or “soon hock” and prawns.
“When arranging to visit Tusan Beach, please check the weather and the calendar for the tide. Must always avoid the high tide as it may be dangerous,” he added, advising the public to take extra care and stay safe there.
However he pointed out that erosion occurs along the Tusan Beach.
“Erosion is serious and the relevant authorities should immediately visit this place and adequate steps must be taken to protect and preserve these new “Lion’s head” and “Baby Drinking Horse head” structures,” he urged. — DayakDaily
